Even stupider than usual…

September 23, 2009

Blog Guy, I saw a photo of a woman painted like a watermelon, and it said she was a “fine arts student.” Where is being painted like a melon a part of the arts curriculum?

I’d guess Carnegie Melon University, in Pittsburgh. It makes sense, because Bill Gates spoke there yesterday…

Wait a minute! It’s Carnegie Mellon, not Melon! You’re an imbecile!

Yes, I am. Please give me another chance.

Sigh. Okay. I saw an Oktoberfest story that mentioned the abundance of something called “décolletage” at the festival. What’s décolletage?

That’s where you cut up pictures and put them on a surface and varnish them. My sister made a décolletage coffee table.

Cripes, you moron! That’s DECOUPAGE! I just looked it up myself, and décolletage is cleavage. CLEAVAGE!

Ah. Like that family in “Leave it to Beaver!”

Groan! Why do I keep coming back here?

I guess you just enjoy the learning process.

Blog guy – you lied in that other thread. There are no mugs in this post!

@Miss Random, I dunno. That’s quite a mug on Mathers if you ask me. ;)

I don’t see the cleavage on Jerry Mathers. Care to explain, Rob?
